Supertankers’ Longest Stretch of Unprofitability

Monday, October 25, 2010

According to an Oct. 24 report from Bloomberg, supertanker owners are facing the longest stretch of unprofitable rates in 17 years as the supply of new vessels increases nine times faster than demand for oil. Shipping companies are making $3,155 a day for a single voyage, 90% below the $30,900 Frontline Ltd., one of the biggest operators, said it needs to break even. According to the report, Morgan Stanley estimates the tanker fleet will expand almost 13% next year and the International Energy Agency said oil use will grow 1.4%.
